UCLA vs UBC

Hi

I am really stuck. I got two admissions with fund from both universities. The fund of both is fine, a bit extra in fact. UBC is for MS and UCLA is for PhD. I don't know what to do.

I can go to ubc for MS and then try Stanford for Phd. or I can directly go to UCLA for PhD. My field is analog and RF.

Please help me

My guess is that you already tried to get into Stanford and didn't make the cut. I'd say its just as likely that an MS will make you less appetizing to Stanford. A few bad grades or a weak pub record during an MS could torpedo the sense of worth you seem to have acquired. You need to remove your blinders and realize UCLA is a fantastic school.

Thanks for the reply.

Nop, I only applied to UCLA and UBC and got admission from both.

No doubt that UCLA is a cool place and all, but I have to take 4 courses per quarter ????? Isn't it too much?

I have to say that UCLA is more decent than UBC though UBC is widely known as a Canadian Ivy.

I applied to UBC as well. But I withdrawn UBC and go for U of Arizona. I know many people consider UBC a better school than Arizona and a MAS from UBC can help me to have a position from a top US school, but I think opportunities there at UA might be better.

it depends on how many credits is the single course. if 4 courses are 12 credits then it's the maximum load. Though, that's not so tough if you know how to manage your time.

Btw, I agree with those who recommended you to go to UCLA. it's a fantastic place (for both academics and life aspects) -- except that it's a bit expensive, of course...
